2007-08: The Sharks first selection of the 2008 draft. Justin along with his twin brother Drew, who the Sharks selected in the seventh round, were among the highest-rated prep school players by the Central Scouting Service. Justin was only ranked 100th among North American skaters and based on his numbers may have been a bit of a stretch in the third round. But the production is there. In 25 games at Kent High School, Daniels notched 47 points.
2008-09: In 56 games with the Sioux City Mustketeers Daniels posted 9 goals and 28 assists.
2009-10: In his freshman season with Northeastern University Daniels posted 8 goals and 7 assists in 32 games.
2010-11: Daniels skated in 28 games for Northeastern as a sophomore – missing ten games due to injury. He had 6 assists and was -1 with 8 PMs. The Huskies finished sixth in Hockey East and lost to defending national champion Boston College in the Hockey East semifinals, finishing 14-16-8 for the year.
Although Daniels has a lot of maturing and developing to do, his physical nature and tremendous shot are his best assets.
